It's official, Android market is now accepting priced applications - HTC Source
Today, Eric Chu from the Android developers blog released a statement saying that the Android Market is now accepting priced applications. Google Checkout will be implemented as the only billing and payment service for app developers and app purchasers (that’s you!). You should start seeing priced apps hitting the Android Market by the middle of next week in the US and UK. Google will be rolling out priced apps to Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, and Spain later in the quarter. Australia should see the free apps on the Android Market on February 15th with Singapore trailing behind only by a couple of weeks. This news marches up with our report from Monday that the HTC G1 is launching next week.
